Shiogama Seafood Wholesale Market

A market where even the general public can buy marine products with outstanding freshness at wholesale prices!

You will find fresh marine products and abundant ingredients at Shiogama Seafood Wholesale Market. It is one of the largest markets in Tohoku with a sales area of 4,950 square meters and 100 stores. Although this is a market where discerning professionals make their purchases, it is also possible for the general public to buy products at wholesale prices.

Shiogama Port boasts one of the largest catches of unfrozen tuna in Japan. It is home to 25 tuna specialty shops. You can buy fresh tuna here. If you are lucky, you can also see the impressive sight of a large tuna being dissected in front of you. In particular, bigeye tuna that has passed strict conditions from September to December is certified as a brand of tuna called ""Higashimono."" This means you can savor even tastier tuna.

There are five restaurants in the market. After purchasing the marine products you want to eat in the market, buy rice in the personal seafood bowl area and neatly top it with your purchases. In this way, you can create your own original seafood bowl. You can freely cook and eat the marine products you have purchased in the market in the free cooking furnace.

The opening hours vary by shop. However, the number of shops that close increase in the afternoon. Therefore, we recommend visiting the market in the morning.
